Sell your home fast with these kitchen staging tips from Christine Rae
It has to work well. Have a good triangle and install an island, even an inexpensive mobile one is better than not having any. Replace shelves in bottom cupboards with drawers and/or roll-out trays for easy access.
Make them fresh and functional. If the boxes and doors are in good shape, painting them white is an inexpensive upgrade.
Install new tiles or upgrade your existing back splash. Keep it timeless and classic with neutral colours; white subway tile in a herringbone pattern is fresh and edgy.
Layers of light are always important in kitchens. Good general illumination, task lighting and mood lighting are appealing. Glam fixtures are still resonating with buyers. Placing those fixtures over islands or where they can be viewed from multiple spaces really elevates the kitchen and adds a bit of grandness to the room.
Functionality leads the way – there are some great vinyls which look like real wood. It is more practical for kids, dogs and family wear and tear. The price point is great for resale.
